Islamic Relief USA Seeks Interns for Fall Program

Islamic Relief USA is seeking applicants for its fall internship program, starting on September 1st and ending on December 1, 2010. Last summer IR USA launched its first internship program. Applications came in from students nationwide as well as overseas from countries like Finland and Egypt.

Bushra Nusairat who was an intern last summer and is now an international programs associate with Islamic Relief USA, says it was an invaluable experience:

"My work with Islamic Relief’s International Programs Division exposed me to the various elements of international development work. From monitoring security situations in volatile regions where IR works to engaging and creating partnerships with local NGOs to lobbying members of Congress for increased funding; my internship was an exciting experience that allowed me to understand the scope of the work we engage in.

I hope that the future interns of Islamic Relief take on the projects that they work on as their own, furthering and perfecting their work beyond the hours they work behind their desks, and moving and inspiring others to do the same."
Positions for the fall internship program will be in Virginia and New Jersey offices and include:

  • Legal Intern
  • Public Affairs Intern
  • Communications Intern
  • Domestic Programs Intern
  • Information Technology Intern
  • International Programs Intern
